Why Study Neuroscience at Concordia?The current trend in science is to move beyond traditional disciplines and approach the understanding of nature from multiple perspectives – and that’s exactly what Concordia’s interdisciplinary neuroscience program is all about. With a unique emphasis on the physical basis of neuroscience, especially chemistry, the program approaches the study of the brain and nervous system from a variety of disciplines.
Concordia’s small class sizes mean you’ll spend more time interacting with your professors in the psychology, biology and chemistry departments – in class and during labs. And because all three departments work together in this program, you’ll benefit from a combined study approach using molecular, systems and behavioral techniques.
There are many outstanding career opportunities for those with training in neuroscience. As a Concordia grad, you can anticipate acceptance into leading graduate and medical schools or careers in teaching, business and industry. The placement record of graduates in recent years is excellent and Concordia is recognized nationally for the quality of its liberal arts and sciences curriculum.
